    Help! I have a Droid 1 running Android 2.2 and I have rooted the phone using EasyRoot. The update notification keeps popping up wanting me to install the Adobe Flash update. Is it safe to install system updates when the phone is rooted? I don't want to brick it or anything. Can anyone help?

    Is it a market update or a system update? What version of 2.2 are you running?

    HOOK, I still haven't found any discussion on updating my rooted Droid 1 from 2.1 to 2.2 without unrooting and re-rooting. So I assume that's the only option, yes?

    You must be super patiant if you're still on 2.1 ;) As far as going from rooted 2.1 to rooted 2.2 there are a few files floating around. I made both a odexed and deodexed version of FRG22D. Pete and P3Droid also put out FRG22D's. Here's the link for mine... let me know if you have any questions

    Somehow my Droid updated itself without me telling it to (possibly got told to start while in my pocket or something), but it seems to be working fine. As LifeIsABeach mentioned, it did remove the root, but nothing bricked or anything as far as I can tell (other than things that require rooting, obviously). I haven't tried installing the Flash download from the market though. I heard users were recommended to wait for the update and I don't really use my Droid to try and view a lot of sites using Flash so I haven't bothered downloading the app yet.

    I just want to post this so people that read this thread don't get confused. The OP wasn't really asking about ADOBE Flash. They got the FRG22D update notification which mentions ADOBE Flash and weren't sure if it was the actually system update or a Flash update.

    Basically if you don't want to lose root, don't allow the system update. Of course there is a way to get root back but it is more of a pain in the butt than just updating to a rooted FRG22D build.
